Announcing the Women of the World 9th Annual Fashion Show Gala on 6 March starting at 5:30pm at The Falls Event Venue in Trolley Square in downtown Salt Lake City. Every year, the Fashion show is an opportunity to highlight something displaced women can teach us. Last year we highlighted the harms of barriers and the benefits of community, this year we move with momentum forward to restore hope. A hope--we are reminded--that is also the object of a journey we take together. The hope we are restoring is at once audacious and an incentive to act.
In the concert "Women of Courage" there is an unveiling of a monument of words and song. We dedicate our transcendental selves to reverence for those that nurtured our better future. On Friday, 17 March and Saturday, 18 March join us for this special celebration of Women of Courage.
DONATIONS: We have recently received a very generous matching grant from the Semnani Foundation that will double any money you are willing to give to our tax-exempt organization.

Clara Zetkin, leader of the women's office for the Social Democratic Party in Germany forwarded the idea of an International Women's Day in 1911. This is the 100 year anniversary of International Women's Day. International Women's Day is a holiday celebrating the achievements of women, a celebration of their intelligence, their strengths, courage, and the beauty of women.
